Abstract

Meniscocapsular separations of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, also known as ramp lesions, are common injuries associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Though there is ample literature on ramp lesion diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes in adult populations, there is scarce work in pediatric populations where increasing ACL tear rates and different injury patterns make more studies and discussion on this topic paramount. We therefore review here the available literature on ramp lesions as it relates to pediatric populations as well as anatomic and technical considerations that should be considered in this group of patients.
